It's always nice when you meet your blogging friends and they don't turn out to be axe murderers


One of the highlights of my trip to Utah was the night I met up for an almost-didn't-happen-but-thankfully-did dinner with two of my favorite daily reads, Kami and Mindi.  My days just wouldn't be the same without either of these bloggers and their unique points of view.

I would not be surprised to learn someday that Kami is part Disney.  The girl is uber-talented, beautiful, thoughtful, assertive (she directed a perfect stranger to take 27 pictures of us), and would likely get along well with royalty, woodland creatures and dwarves alike.  She inspires me with her incredible design, photography, and do-it-yourself skills.  But most of all, she's really fun to hang out with.  (She also taught me about using Picnik, which has lead to my current obsession.  Can't you tell?)

Mindi--equally beautiful and thoughtful--is hilarious and exudes a cool factor in the 99th percentile, even though she recently admitted to using a refill mug.  And let's talk a minute about her generous streak, okay?  She tipped our waitress VERY amply and also offered to set me and Ryan up in a hotel room for the night, though I had to regretfully decline.  (Ryan and me alone in a hotel room?  What would my parents think?!)  I rely on Mindi's blog to keep me apprised of all things current, cool, and quirky.  Her sense of humor is unmatched.  

Time really flew by and before we knew it, the restaurant employees were locking the doors, mopping the floors, and wondering if the three ladies in the booth would ever shut up.  (The answer: no.)  We talked about so many things, not the least of which was blogging and how each of us has evolved in our relationship with this strange new medium of self-expression.  

It was a great night.  Thanks again, ladies!

I love the title to this post.

I have officially meet (in-person) two blogger friends. Both were great experiences. I can't wait to have more experiences.

Oh blog world, you are so strange and lovely.

Mindi said...

like i said to kami: YOU. COMPLETE. ME.

and it's so true--except for the 'not turning out to be axe murderers' part. that might be a little true....

thanks for accepting me even AFTER the refill mug confession.

i heart you! X0X0

ps that new blog header is FABULOUS! i love it!!!!!!

I am going to go ahead and assume this was after I left Utah or during the wedding and not feel left out :(
I concur that Kami must be part Disney and while I am primarily a Mindi stalker (and not much of a commenter) I admit that refill mug confessional (and so many other posts) crack me up.
p.s. will you now please pass along your newfound Picnik knowledge because I'm very, very jealous of your fun new photos and I was wondering how you learned this while you were away.

Man, those shoes are hot!

I've heard the greatest things about Mindi. She seems too good to be true.

I'm so glad I wasn't there. I would be the frumpy Friendosaurus in the middle of all of you.

Kami said...

I loved that I got Tiffany time while you were here. What a fun night with two of my favorites, I wanted it to go on for hours.

Part Disney?! Ha! The woodland creature part for sure. You are too nice. All of it comes right back at you.

Now it's my turn. :)

Ok, you totally look like a young version of Michelle Pfeiffer in this photo. Gorgeous!

Love your new header too!

If you ever happen to be a little south of Salt Lake, where the people are even more weird, you should come visit me. This is because I think we were friends in a previous life -- one of my lives where I *wasn't* an axe murderer.

Omgirl said...

Hey thanks for looking me up while you were in Utah. Jerk. I'm going to go sharpen my axe now. (just kidding. About the jerk part. Not the axe part.)
